3rd Annual Cornhole Classic at RFSF
It’s become a tradition at the Reading Fall Street Faire – the Cornhole Classic Tournament. Every year the Fall Street Faire Committee invites interested residents to enter and compete to be named the best Cornhole player in Reading.  All players are invited to enter – from casual backyard players to hardcore Cornhole enthusiasts.  Organizer and Rotarian Sheila Clarke says, “The great thing about Cornhole is pretty much anyone can play.  It’s fun and easy and always a good time.”  Last year father/daughter team “Daddy’s Girl” took home the crown after facing down impressive competition.  There’s some excitement to see if they return and can repeat their victory.
The Cornhole Classic Tournament, now in its third year, is held on lower Haven Street.  It is part of the Reading Fall Street Faire Tailgate area that includes the Patriots game streaming on a big screen and a beer garden (for those 21 and older).
Cornhole Classic registrations are now open The Cornhole Classic is tournament style and professionally run by Wicked Cornhole. Registration begins at 1, and bags fly at 2. There is a $60 fee to enter a two-person team. The top two teams win cash prizes, but Ms. Clarke says what everyone is really playing for is bragging rights. Register for your spot to play at
Sponsorship opportunities. For a $500 sponsorship, local businesses and organizations can have a professional set of Cornhole Boards made up with their name/logo. These boards will be used throughout the tournament and sponsors get to take them home at the end of the day. They are a great addition to corporate events, backyard BBQs, in an employee break space, or even in a customer area to bring a little fun to your business. See for more information on how to become a Cornhole Classic Sponsor.
All proceeds from the Cornhole Classic will go to the Reading Rotary Club and the Fall Street Faire.
Follow Reading Fall Street Faire on Facebook and Instagram to stay up to date on all the fun.
Revamped Meeting Schedule
At our last board meeting we went over several topics one of which is our meeting days and times.  Starting after the RFSF, we are going to hold club meetings the first and third Mondays of every month.  We will meet:
1st Monday:  Residence at Pearl in Reading at 12:15
3rd Monday:  RCTV at 6pm.  All lunches and dinners will be catered. 
Our Board Meetings will now be held on the 4th Monday of every month.  The first meeting after the RFSF will be Monday, September 19 at RCTV at 6PM. We are hoping that with the changes in time and location will allow us to accommodate all the members and their busy schedules.
I encourage everyone to check our Calendar on our website.  Please subscribe to the Calendar to sync to your computer and phone.  Any questions please reach out to Sheila or me.
Reading Achieves RI Presidential Citation
Congratulations to Immediate Past Prez/Current Co-Prez John Douglass for leading Reading Rotary to achieve the RI Presidential Citation for 2021-22.
Reading is one of 9 clubs in District 7930 who are being so recognized.
The Rotary Citation recognizes the hard work clubs do throughout the year.  This Citation is awarded to Rotaries that set and achieve goals in areas such as membership, service projects and annual fund giving.  Taking action toward achieving the citation goals helps clubs engage their members, stay relevant in their communities, and run more efficiently.  A welcoming and engaging club also reflects the values of Rotary.
